The School Counseling Department at Oyster Bay High School is committed to serving the social, emotional and academic needs of all the students in our school district. It is an integral part of every student’s education. Counselors work collaboratively with students, parents, teachers and administrators to plan and implement programs that help students succeed as they progress through high school and plan for their future careers. Student development is supported through individual and group counseling, classroom lessons, and academic advisement as well as in consultation with teachers, parents, and the community.
